The Fabrication Lab supports the Faculty of the GSD as well as students enrolled in the courses they offer. Staffed by three full-time employees and over 70 graduate students, Lab resources are available to students during the Fall and Spring semesters on a daily basis. Beyond the academic terms, Faculty research investigates a wide range of topics, making use of resources across the Lab. Maintaining a priority for safety, basic training is required for all users; more advanced training is also available to researchers and Lab employees.
